Coe-Karam Reception

On Tuesday, December 10th, UAB hosted a reception at UAB Alumni House to honor George Karam (Housestaff, 1977-1980 and Chief Medical Resident 1980-1981) and Craig Coe (Housestaff 1980-1983), who together started the Legacy Fund to support the camaraderie of our residency program. The fund will stand as a lasting tribute to Dr. Tinsley Harrison and will ensure that our residents – present and future – will be schooled in the principles upon which he built his legacy.
